Greetings Lochburn Families,

Let me begin by thanking Lochburn families, students and staff for making our March Student Led Conferences a success once again. We had around 90% of our students participate in a student led conference that included the student, a family member and a Lochburn staff member. I am always proud of family engagement at Lochburn, and once again, our families have shown their dedication to our school, students and community.

During the month of April, Clover Park middle schools will continue in the hybrid learning model. Whether your student is cohort A, cohort B or all virtual, the most important behaviors that you can emphasize with your student are attendance and engagement. This means that each student shows up for EVERY class, EVERY day! And, while in class the student participates and engages in the learning process. One great way to engage is by asking questions. Students can unmute, write in the chat, or speak up, when in the actual classroom. Questions fuel engagement and are critical to learning! Challenge your student to unmute and ask a question!

I want to remind families that our 3rd quarter ended on Friday, April 2nd. Our teachers have from April 12th through the 16th to complete their grading. Your student’s report card will be mailed home on Friday, April 23rd. After you review your student’s grades with him or her, then take some time to set a goal and make a plan for improvement. Everyone has room for growth. A student with all A’s may set a goal to improve his or her attendance. Or, a student with a B may set a goal, and make a plan, to raise that B to an A! Whatever the goal, when set with a caring family member, it is far more likely to be achieved!

Thank you Lochburn families. It is Lochburn’s mission to ensure students see themselves as successful in school and are college and career ready.

Thank you,

Greg Wilson - Principal
